Architectural education will not be complete without due reference to its studio culture. This Culture consists of habits, patterns and experiences expressed by students in their design studio. The design studio culture has been observed to have affect creativity of students over the years. This paper examines the effect of design studio culture already existing from the review of literature. The study survey method was adopted to obtain quantitative data from the students through the use of structured questionnaires which were administered in the selected schools in southwest Nigeria. The data gotten were subjected to factor and regression analysis using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS). Results gotten showed that the students perceived the other factors to be the core components of design studio culture in addition to those already identified in the review of literature. The findings also indicated that only five(5) of these components affects architecture students’ creativity. This paper recommends that the awareness of studio culture should be promoted through the departmental policies as a way of improving students creativity. Findings for this study are expected to provide the universities with empirical grounds that will aid policies and reforms directed at improving academic performance of architecture students.
